Karolyn - Artisan Blocks Blog Hop

My project features two of the newest stamp sets that are being released on August 1st.  Kim has designed a mini background block stamp set called Artisan Blocks – six different mini patterns that are so freakin’ fun to play with and have amazing possibilities!  I masked the sentiment strip with some washi tape and then I stamped the lined Artisan Block in three different colors, overlapping them a bit, and flipping the direction on each end.  The sentiment is from the new sentiment set called Many Thanks – lots of great sentiments is super fun fonts (including some with Kim’s handwriting, of course!)  That stamp set will most definitely be used on a frequent basis at my house!  Love it!  You totally need to visit my teamies (listed above) to see what they’ve created for you – no doubt it’s beyond phenomenal!

Well, that’s it for me today, my friends.  It’s going to be uber busy around the Loncon household the next couple of days.  My youngest daughter is coming home after being gone since the first part of June.  And my adorable grandsons will be visiting today and tomorrow – can’t wait!!


PRODUCTS USED:
STAMPS:  Artisan Blocks and Many Thanks (Paper Smooches Stamps)
INK:  Grapefruit, Buttercup and Bermuda (A Muse Studio), Navy (Fresh Ink)
PAPER:  Regal Rose CS (Stampin’ Up!), Solar White CS (Neenah Classic Crest)
OTHER:  Lemon Baker’s Twine (Divine Twine), Midnight Blue and Ocean Baker’s Twine (The Twinery), Enchanted Evening and Hibiscus Burst Buttons (PTI)
